Bestowal dialogue

'I am here to help you learn how to use skills that will make you a more powerful Guardian. As you gain levels, more skills will become available to you.'

HINT:

Guardians rely on Reactive Skills to deal damage and generate Threat against their enemies. Shield Swipe requires that the Guardian Block an incoming enemy attack before they can use the skill. Head over to the Training-Dummies to the north of the trainer and attack it until you successfully block one of their attacks. If you're having trouble getting a block, try using Guardian's Ward to increase your chances of blocking enemy attacks. Once you have blocked an attack you will be able to use your Shield Swipe skill. Strike the Targeting Dummy with Shield Swipe.

Background
